Dear You

You are someone else
You are not mine.

I can say simple words,
Say You’re nice
Say You’re funny
Say You love me
But You are someone else,
Someone who I cannot define

& Yes
Your charm will fade,
Just as the wrinkles on Your face will form
My smiling eyes will frown
& Your teeth will be crooked
Just as they were

My worried head will still annoy You
But Your forked tongue will still stab my chest
The birds will envy Your wingspan
& I will envy the world,
Safely settled in Your left hand

You are someone else
You are not mine
You are someone I cannot define
